Comment: How to Pen Test... (Score 1) 205 205

If you want to do what the high-dollar bank auditors do that I have to deal with (banking IT customers), just BUY a pen test app, run it on network, and hand over a 300 page PDF that includes goofy things like "LaserJet 4000 Printer - Old/No SSL web interface. Upgrade firmware recommended."

My rates went up about 25% the first year, deductibles DOUBLED. Second year, another 25% on the premium, they game us some funky health savings fund as a "bonus" but after you go through the $500 the company places in there, you're on the hook for the next $5000 in deductibles.

We used to have a nice 80/20 plan...

People getting subsidies that weren't supposed to get subsidies, or got too much, and now have no job, but have to pay back some of the subsidies because it's not counted as income?

Oh, don't forget that the IRS sent out everyone's 1099 (or whatever it was) with incorrect info, causing people to have to pay their tax-prep service AGAIN for amended returns.

Great process, that Obummercare is.

Exactly... Once it's under the jurisdiction of the FCC, there's very little we can do. I'm envisioning FCC licenses for various websites. You're a blogger? You reach over 10,000 "listeners"? You must pay for a broadcast license! Just like the airways are "common," the interwebs will be considered "common" and could be subject to the same rules as you see in radio/TV.
